A reprint of a paper from the Journal of the Iron and Steel Institute (Vol. 197, April 1961), describing the use of a LEO II computer for the daily planning of ore production from quarries supplying blast-furnaces. The computer calculates the chemical composition of ore and provides ten digging programmes each week. The paper also assesses the effectiveness of the system and possible future developments.
